While I was writing my post “Stay Humble” yesterday, I suddenly recalled a story all of us know – it is the story of the tortoise and the hare.
The hare could run fast and he knew it very well. When the race began, there were no doubt the hare had more than a head start. Soon, it displayed the gross mismatch between the two runners – the hare and the tortoise.
Self confident and with a great measure of pride in his prowess, the hare took a long break in between the race and fell asleep. On the other hand, the tortoise remained focused and ran slowly. But very patiently and diligently and eventually won the race. Realizing too late that he was going to lose the race, the desperate hare made a mad scramble to the finishing line, but did not made it.
Life is like a race. Irregardless if you realize it or not, irregardless if you acknowledge it or not. It has a beginning and an end, and it is headed somewhere …………………….. How are you progressing?
